You can check the fuel pump by savely checking the fuel pump is pumping fuel. disconnect the coil wire from the coil, not the cap, disconnect the fuel line at the carb and stick the end into a glass, not plastic, jar or bottle and crank the engine for about three seconds. It will give you an idea if there is a dribble or a decent volume in the glass container. Make sure you have enough gas in the tank, gauges can be off.

Good possibility that it's the ballast resistor. That's the classic symptom. Bypass it, see if it starts. If it does, don't run it longer than out 10 seconds, then shut down and get a new one.
